oh the wooliness!

Got back from an absolutely gorgeous weekend upstate with Cindy, John, and wee Helen. Great weather (if a little too hot for this time of year), scintillating conversation, and more beautiful yarn, adorable llamas, wooly sheep, pumpkins, and earth mothers than I have ever seen gathered in one place before. I didn't go completely overboard, just a little. Okay, maybe a little more than just a little, with seven gorgeous, luxurious skeins of yarn from various little places.

550 yards of 100% merino goodness in greens, purples, & blues from Briar Rose Fibers. 400 yards of superwash merino/nylon in bright orange from Spirit Trail Fiberworks. Two 420-yard skeins of an odd yet beautiful superwash merino/silk/viscose combo from Brooks Farm Yarns, one in cinnamonish shades, the other in shades of purple. One skein of 560 yards of lovely charcoal twist wool from Silver Moon Farm. And lastly, two skeins from the Great Adirondack Yarn Company, one 250-yard skein of superwash merino also in orange, the other 675 yards of beautiful soft merino/silk in shades of rose, green, and blue.

I am never, ever allowed to go to the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival again. Never. Ever. Again.
